Episode 229: Hill Farmstead Flora & NoDa Brewing Tart Attack

Lets get funky! In episode 229 of the Hop CastBrad Chmielewski & Ken Hunnemeder open a couple funky beers from the East coast. First up is the 4.8% ABV Flora from Hill Farmstead Brewery. Flora is a barrel aged Wheat Saison, brewed with Butterworks Farm Organic Vermont Winter Wheat and aged for 8 to 14 months in French Oak wine barrels. It’s a real treat to finally enjoy some Hill Farmstead on the show. Next up Brad and Ken open the 4.3% ABV Tart Attack from NoDa Brewing Company. To further the tart character, NoDa rested this beer on blackberries after its fermentation was complete.

Both these beers were interesting, unique and low in alcohol making them both very easy to drink. If you have a chance to pick up either of these beers or anything from these two breweries, make it happen.
